Sweet Sarah had a bead swap recently and I was Blessed with having Julie as my Partner. She is such a sweet doll :) Our tastes are very similar, so this was an easy swap for me. She likes blue, creams and pinks. I made her two boxes, one for the beads, and one for the focal. Both contents I wrapped in old hankies. I found the sweetest vintage plate with two Victorian women. One in pink and one in blue :) Perfect !!! I added roses and a hanger for her to enjoy. :) Lots of Pink and blue beads, with pretty creamy pearls. Her focal is a vintage brooch that I added some pink rhinestones to the pale blue ones. Yummy ! I also added a few square MOP pearls that I hand painted sweet blue forget me nots onto. :)
She made me the SWEETEST Box ! I LOVE her hand made roses in my colors. She also hand stamped the box in text. Darling !Love, Love !!!!! Inside was another sweet box that she decorated with tiny PINK rhinestones, Sweet !!As well as two bags, one with silver findings , and the other with a rose parfum. I have to almost laugh as our beads are SO close in colors. Mine being more aqua and blue, but Sarah did a great job of pairing us. I love this awesome MOP focal and cant wait to paint a rose onto it :)
Well, I have LOTS to catch you all up on. Another swap that I was in and TERRIBLY late finishing :( I have been really ill this go around. Hopefully this weekend I will post and share more of what has been going on.
Thank you Sarah, for being such an awesome host and Julie, you Rock sweet girl !!
